Quotes, UCF’s FPRA student chapter, invites you to Intern Pursuit on October 30 at the University of Central Florida. The bi-annual internship fair, unique to students in communication-related fields of study, will be held from 6-8 p.m. in the Pegasus Ballroom of the Student Union.
Intern Pursuit helps young professionals connect and network with Orlando employers, and entertains more than 200 students each semester. Attendees exhibit skills in advertising, public relations, marketing, event planning, and graphic design; and are often required to complete a semester of internship before graduation.
FPRA-OAC member Laura Kern, associate director of marketing and communications for Metro Orlando Economic Development Commission, is one of many employers who benefit from finding an intern at this event. “Intern Pursuit is a great way to ensure you get high-quality, internship-ready candidates for your organization. I’ve been participating in Intern Pursuit for years and within a few hours you meet the next generation of star PR practitioners. While you are there, you can even perform a quick preliminary interview to narrow your search for a great intern,” says Kern.
